results to a struggle between freedom of religion and the right of government to regulate society even when such regulations may interfere with religious doctrines because those are two points that are important here. there was a time in this country before 1965 when it was okay for a state to outlaw the use of contraceptions by married couples. several states had been for years. they were lingering on the books for years and finally the supreme court in a case called griswold versus connecticut said it was unconstitutional to prohibit married people from using contraceptions in the privacy of their bedroom. does the constitution have a provision that says government shall not prohibit married people from using contraception in their bedroom? no. it does not. it does have something called due process and with in due process the court eventually found that there was a right of privacy and for my libertarian friends in the crowd, it really means something you've been saying for years which is the government needs to get all of our lives to the extent possible and having the government re

old, mr. melendez. what he did was a serious felony crime and he created a baby, my client is religion, she raised the child because it is h her belief that the child shouldn't suffer and now here is a guy who has had absolutely nothing to do with this child from birth suddenly has an urge to visit only because he is suddenly being made to pay. my beef with the judge is had the judge punished him in the criminal case by ordering restitution instead of sending him off to family court where he was rewarded with the privilege of fatherhood the guy would be paying restitution for his criminal behavior maybe in the form of an amount of money roughly equal to that which he might have been ordered to pay in family court but it would be a criminal punishment and wouldn't come attached to the presumptive privilege of fatherhood. >> shannon: there are two different situations here. the criminal judge. the criminal case. the rape case. he then sent the admitted rapist over to family court saying tamly court, probate court is where they decide with whether or not you can visit the child and what r
